Amelia Curiosity

Heather Valentin is doing another Lacy Sunshine competition on her Facebook page and offered two different digis to choose from for it - I chose to embrace my dark side and went for Amelia from the Curiosities Collection. I love these digis but am never sure who I would send one to. I might just buy a few and make a few framed pictures with them for my room instead of doing cards.

Anyway this card is also for Sketch and Stash's Challenge #134 (My new stash is my digi stamp and my old is the patterned paper which  must be over 5 years old now as I got it before I became a SU demonstrator and I celebrated my 5th anniversary just before Christmas!) and for Scrapbook Stamp Society's Challenge #36 Anything Goes with the option of distressing, which fits perfectly with this image.

And here she is. Had to add this gorgeous corner die as an archway for a Gothic-y feel to it.
